Ten grade-school finalists participated in St. Monica Academy’s recent Geography Bee on Friday Jan. 10 in Ross Chapel: Georgina Buchanan, Benedict Feser, Ciara Collins, Charles Scott, John Arnall, John Paul Collins, Sarah Lizarde, Elissa Taylor, Katie McCool, and Victoria Iglesias.

The last several rounds were particularly exciting, with a long tie-breaker between Katie McCool and Ciara Collins, and a close final round between John Paul Collins and Katie McCool. John Paul won the competition, and Katie was runner-up. John Paul will go on to represent St. Monica Academy in the regional geography bee. Congratulations to all of our contestants!
